Re: Wheat allergy and sinusitis?
I have a wheat allergy, my main symptom before being diagnosed was severe sinusitis and migraines. No allergy meds worked because I was eating the allergen. Now that I do not eat wheat/gluten, I do not have chronic sinusitis anymore. I get airborne allergies to wheat as well and will be starting allergy shots to keep from getting a histamine response to wheat when I am around it. You could try a gluten free diet to see if it works. You will have to go completely GF for at least 2 weeks to see if you get better. You must avoid barley and rye as well, as they contain wheat. No beer, bread, soy sauces, etc. Wheat is in everything. Learn how to eat GF before starting so you don't screw up the test. They even put wheat in shampoo, which gets in your mouth when you shampoo your hair. Mascara is also full of wheat and will get into your body through your eye membranes, another huge source is lipstick. Wheat is hard to avoid, but can be done with a little education and a lot of label reading. Good luck.
